Dr. Sam Alibrando, Ph.D.
Author & Speaker
Alibrando Psychological Consulting

When you ask a business owner or executive what keeps them up at night, half the time it has to do with an employee, partner, vendor or client – in other words a difficult person. And often these difficult people make us into a difficult person – we become frustrated, ineffective and reactive ourselves. What difference would it make if you have more leverage in those types of relationships?

Dr. Sam will take the model from his latest book on emotional intelligence and apply it to this very issue, giving the participant both a model to understand the other person (and yourself) as well as a tool to use to optimize the relationship by helping you find your “sweet spot” when interacting with the difficult person.

And if you have an extra 15 minutes any time (between now and September 8th), please take his free assessment to determine your interpersonal & reactivity style. It will help you more directly apply the content of the session to yourself.  Simple go to to take the assessment.
